This is the moment the Queen was caught on camera telling a police officer that she found the Chinese diplomats who visited the UK last year to be ‘very rude’.
I’m not the greatest fan of the living tourist attraction that is Queen Elizabeth II, but it has to be said that this video is rather amusing.
The police officer, Lucy D’Orsi, described to Britain’s longest serving monarch how Chinese officials walked out of a meeting with Barbara Woodward, British ambassador to China, at Lancaster House, telling them the trip was off.
And, as if out of thin air, the Queen claimed ‘they were very rude to the ambassador’.
The Metropolitan Police said it would not comment on the private conversation.
Earlier on the same day, Prime Minister David Cameron was caught off guard speaking to the Queen while referring to Nigeria and Afghanistan as being ‘fantastically corrupt’.
In the clip he says:
We’ve got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain… Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world.
Not Saudi Arabia though, Dave. Not Saudi Arabia.
